The Business of Writing
Our own Teresa of Hershey posted this link to a good tutorial series about the business side of writing.
@ Isabel Cooper and anyone else thinking about licensing intellectual property.
Kristine Kathryn Rusch is writing a TERRIFIC series about managing and licensing intellectual property for writers on her blog. If you’ve got a line of whisky being made using your fictional characters, you’re licensing your IP. A writer’s IP can be licensed in thousands of ways. Think of J.K. Rowling! She’s even got tea towels.
Go to her site for the first part of her dozen part (and counting) series.
Read Kris’s posts BEFORE you start negotiating. It will take a few hours to go through them all, but they are a quick course in licensing that you won’t get anywhere else.
